[DML] Re: transmission seals

Do you mean the axle seals? Did you put a speedi-sleeve on the flanges? 
(Hi Mark V). They are usually pretty rough and rusty, they will leak 
right thru a new seal. 

Pulling the seal will definitely tear it up. The level of the oil 
**should** be level with the drain plug. So, yes, level is above the 
axle port.
